Aluprof Offer Colour Options

Often overlooked in home improvement schemes, the garage door plays a big part in the ‘kerb appeal’ of a property, whilst adding both security and insulation to any home. The ‘Rolling Shutter Door’ option offers some of the best USPs in the choice of garage doors and the current offer from Aluprof UK does not fail to impress.

Rolling shutter doors have been used for many decades in the security and insulation of both homes and commercial properties.

In particular roller shutters have been used extensively on the continent in helping to keep homes cool by offering an extra layer of insulation, whilst keeping solar radiation out.

In the UK roller shutters are often seen on commercial premises for additional security, but, rarely on residential properties due to our cooler temperate climate.

Growing in popularity today is the colour-coated aluminium roller shutter lath which offers a combination of good looks, security and insulation.

Rolling shutter garage doors from Aluprof UK are available in a wide range of lath combinations and sizes to suit any project.

For security applications, extruded aluminium lath widths of 41mm, 55mm and 77mm are available.

For insulation, pressed aluminium ‘compact’ laths with foam fillers are available in widths of 52mm, 55mm and a ‘classic look’ of 77mm.

All six lath profiles are available in a wide range of colours from stock in the UK.

Homeowners' use of colour has changed over the last few decades as fashion changes. Typically in the 1980s browns were most popular for garage doors, moving to whites in the 1990s.

More recently we have seen the choice of dark grey, anthracite or even black for fenestration by homeowners which reflects the dominant colour currently used in commercial construction.

There is also a further colour which has seen growth over the last decade and that is ‘Chartwell Green’ which reflects the charms typically seen in an English cottage.

As fashion changes, so do the stock profiles in the UK to meet customer demand.

At the moment popular lath colours include, ‘Goose Wing Grey’ (RAL 7038), ‘Aluminium Grey’ (RAL 9007), ‘Quartz Grey’ (RAL 7039), ‘Satin Grey’, ‘Graphite’ and ‘Metallic Grey’.

Most of these popular colours are available across the range of lath systems and sizes.

Each of the systems supplied by Aluprof comes in a wide range of colours available from stock in our Altrincham distribution facility.

All colour-coated foam-filled laths are supplied with an additional ClearCoat specification for the highest quality and sustainability that offers a thicker, harder-wearing and abrasion-resistant finish.

Some of the stock finishes include woodgrain options such as rosewood, golden oak and walnut which are available with matching boxes and guide channels.

All extruded aluminium profiles are powder coated to the highest standard and also include Decoral woodgrain finishes, again all available from stock from our Altrincham distribution facility.

Aluprof’s manufacturing plants in Poland are proud to be licence holders for the application of both QUALICOAT and QUALIDECO powder coatings, which are well-recognised across the globe.

Aluprof UK is pleased to announce that three further new colours have recently been launched to supplement the range of lath profiles available from stock, these are Slate Grey (RAL 7015), Duck Egg Blue and a Metallic Graphite finish, further information is available on demand.

A recent move by some local authorities is the ban on the installation of external plain steel roller shutters on high streets.

The preference for some of these local authorities and their planning departments is the installation of discrete colour-coated roller shutters fitted behind the glazed façade.

Whatever the requirement, support from Aluprof-trained and experienced technicians can help with project detailing and provision of such systems.

Depending on the location requirement, Aluprof can quickly supply both lath size and colour options to create an aesthetically pleasing solution.
